    I wonder where I can find Pocahontas and John Smith in Animal Kingdom this summer? I can’t wait to meet them.

    Welcome to planDisney, Allison! Thanks so much for stopping by and asking us this question. I'm happy to see you have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation this summer! 

    Isn't it so wonderful that we can see, interact, and even hug our favorite characters again?! Pocahontas and John Smith are usually protecting the forest and might be a little harder to find. When you are at Disney's Animal Kingdom or any of the other theme parks you can use the My Disney Experience app to see where characters are located. At this time, I do not see either of these characters on the Animal Kingdom map, however, you could check the app on the day of your visit. Simply open the app, choose the location icon at the bottom, and select the filter to limit your search to Animal Kingdom. Next, select "Characters" from the drop-down menu. The locations that have characters will appear on the map. You might also be able to catch a glimpse of Pocahontas and her friends floating just around the riverbend on the Discovery River Character Cruise which happens various times throughout the day.

    Once Fantasmic! returns at Disney's Hollywood Studios, there's a chance you can catch Pocahontas fighting the villains again. We don't know the return date yet and she might not be available to appear, but stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog for the latest news. 

    If you have more questions as you are planning, please visit us again at planDisney. We're always happy to help with planning your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth

    Happy Planning!
